Q: What do you do?

A: I make sure we optimise our use of technology to make the best VR games on time and budget. And meddle in everything else.


Q: What makes you most excited for VR as whole?

A: Developing for VR, you naturally come across different subjects like optics, display technology, graphics hardware, neuroscience, and psychology; there’s always something new to learn!


Q: What are your thoughts on the way the VR industry has grown in the last 12 months?

A: We’ve seen the releases of several consumer devices. The first hardware generation for the general public has arrived. This means that it’s now our turn as content producers to use that hardware to create compelling experiences.


Q: What major trends do you predict for VR in 2017?

A: 2017 may be the year of disappointment when VR content does not live up to the hype. Meanwhile, the hardware is in place and developers all over the world will explore what can be done and come up with ideas that just weren’t possible to realise without VR. We may see VR’s killer app this year.


Q: Which part of VR Connects/PGC London are you most looking forward to and why?

A: The talks. I always enjoy a knowledgeable person sharing information.
